Through our Affordable Learning LOUISIana initiative, LOUIS partners libraries and faculty to save students money on education by reducing the costs of instructional materials through the use of Affordable Education Resources (AERs), Open Educational Resources (OERs), and other open access materials. This also ensures that students have equitable access to course materials on the first day of class.
LOUIS supports affordability initiatives including curriculum driven acquisitions (CDA), analysis of bookstore lists, and adoption of open education resources through technology innovations, administrative support and professional development for librarians.
Reports and presentations on the Affordable Learning LOUISiana project including reports to the Louisiana Board of Regents and local and national presentations.
Information and archived events for Open Access and Open Education Weeks along with ongoing projects with the Open Textbook Network and other LOUIS sponsored events.
